Price From $90
For travelers who'd prefer a little respite from the constant intensity of the Strip, the nearly 2-year-old M Resort, a 10-minute drive south, provides an appealingly low-key alternative. The understated design scheme is heavy on natural elements (wood floors, granite columns, amber-colored glass), and there's ample space in the 390 rooms (starting at an airy 550 square feet). The casino floor even has skylights overhead—a Vegas rarity. Still, guests won't feel too far afield, thanks to the floor-to-ceiling views of blinking Las Vegas Boulevard from most rooms.
